To All:

We know that traffic on Shore Drive in the vicinity of Lesner Bridge has been a challenging at times this week. We all appreciate your patience as we continue with the median work in preparation for moving the eastbound Shore Drive traffic onto the new bridge. Our current traffic move date for this eastbound traffic is December 21, 2016.

LEFT TURN LANE closures and LEFT THRU lane closures on Shore Drive at Lesner Bridge will continue into next week. So, in order to help you plan your daily commute, here is what to expect the traffic condition to look like on Shore Drive at Lesner Bridge beginning TODAY, Monday, December 5th:
